Program Details

Kado: The Path of Flowers

with Marcia Shibata
November 30 / 7:00 PM - December 2 / 6:00 AM


Due to limited space, registration for the full weekend workshop is closed, and we are now starting a waitlist for the workshop. We are still accepting registrations for the Friday evening only talk and demonstration. Please call us directly at 212-675-6544 to register for Friday or add yourself to the weekend waitlist over the phone.


Japanese flower arranging, also called Kado or Ikebana, can be practiced as a contemplative art. Under the guidance of Marcia Shibata, students learn to create flower arrangements, and experience Kado as a creative and meditative dance with nature, space, and perception. Like meditation, Kado teaches us to really look at what is before us.


Due to limited space and cost of materials, there is a $50 deposit to reserve your spot in the weekend. Please note that your space in the program is not guaranteed without this minimum $50 deposit.

If you need to cancel, this $50 deposit is only refundable if you cancel before Monday evening Nov 26th (due to materials and other associated costs).

Marcia Shibata, a student of Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche, is classically trained in the major schools of Ikebana and works with students throughout the world. She is one of the strongest inspirations behind the resurging practice of Kado, the contemplative art of flowers and branches.
